In summer 2016, Schlun & Elseven Lawyers opened its second office next to Aachen in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia and the world-famous Cologne Cathedral. Cologne was already a metropolis in Roman times and even today the remains of the imposing city wall and the Roman tower bear witness to the importance of the city of Cologne. Today, the Roman-Germanic Museum near the Cathedral deals with the past. The city of Cologne also played an essential historical role in the following centuries. The Cologne Cathedral, in particular, whose construction began on 15 August 1248 and was only completed in 1880 after 600 years, illustrates the historical development and significance of the Rhine metropolis. The architectural history was crowned by honouring the cathedral as being a world cultural heritage. We are pleased to be able to offer our legal advice in such an important city.

Another passion of the people of Cologne is the ” Effzeh”, the 1st FC Cologne. Probably in no other city do the citizens identify with their football club and its mascot, the billy goat Hennes. In terms of sports, the city of Cologne is also the centre of European handball for a few days every year. Since the 2007 World Handball Championship Final, every year the final matches of the EHF Champions League take place at the Lanxess Arena, at the end of which the best European club team will be celebrated.

During the fifth season, Cologne is the heart of German carnival. Every year on 11.11. at 11:11 o’clock the “Jecken” inaugurate the so-called fifth season on the old market. Our law firm is located at Kyffhäuserstr. 45 in the so-called Kwartier Latäng in the middle of the action. During the street carnival, the people of Cologne celebrate this culture with numerous guests from all over the world.

Despite all its madness, Cologne is one of the most important business locations in Germany. The connection to the Rhine and the proximity to the Ruhr area and the Benelux states have a high influence on the economic life of the city. Cologne is famous for its Ford factories, being some of the city’s largest employers. Moreover, the “Echt Kölnisch Wasser” (4711), which is now marketed by Mäurer & Wirtz GmbH in the Rhineland, plays an essential economic role.

In addition, Cologne is well known for its involvement in the media business. In addition to Westdeutscher Rundfunk, private television stations such as RTL, RTL 2 and VOX also have their headquarters in Cologne. Although the tv series plays in Munich, the classic German show Lindenstraße is filmed in Cologne. In the popular quiz show “Who wants to be a millionaire” with Günther Jauch, not only legal questions are asked and answered. With respect to your legal questions, however, you should rather contact our lawyers than rely on the questions and answers from television and the Internet. The lawyers at our Cologne office will support you with their expertise in all legal questions and problems.

In addition, Cologne is home to countless trade fairs from all sectors of the industry; both in the fields of nutrition (Anuga), art and culture (Art Cologne) and gaming (GamesCom). Due to the trade fair location in Cologne, our law firm is regularly commissioned by international companies to draw up the relevant contracts. Furthermore, our lawyers regularly assist clients in trademark issues or competition disputes concerning trade fair exhibitions.

Also in academic terms, Cologne has much to offer. The old university which was founded in 1388, is one of the oldest universities in Europe. The new university, which was founded on 29 May 1919 with the involvement of Konrad Adenauer, who was then the Mayor of the City of Cologne, now offers a home to almost 50,000 students. The University’s Law Faculty enjoys an excellent reputation throughout Germany. Furthermore, the Max-Planck-Society conducts various research projects in Cologne (institutes for social research, neurological research and plant breeding research).
